Adjust Comment Print

While a previous teaser trailer introduced Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer as adult versions of Michael and Jane Banks, the unruly children Poppins whipped into shape in the original, this is our first substatial look at Blunt as the practically flawless heroine of P.L. Travers' iconic novels. She's returned to Jane and Michael Banks, now played by Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw respectively, 25 years after the events of the first film. Michael is now a widower with three precocious children of his own, and Mary has returned to help the family recover from their loss.

Blunt plays the eponymous role that Julie Andrews made famous in the 1964 classic musical fantasy.

The clip also gives a look at Lin-Manuel Miranda as a dancing lamp lighter, as well as glimpses of Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Dame Julie Walters and Angela Lansbury.

A new trailer, poster and photos from Mary Poppins Returns have arrived.Here is your latest look at the new adventures on Cherry Tree Lane with the practically flawless nanny. The film is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) and written by David Magee (Finding Neverland). I don't want it to be, 'Oh, here comes that Mary Poppins.' I don't want that.
